Graeme Swann will be England's new spin guru. In recent times, the England and Wales Cricket Board has summoned the services of ex-players to coach youngsters and be part of the cricket management teams. After former left-arm spinner Ashley Giles, Swann is the latest 'recruit.'
The 35-year-old Swann will train young England spinners. Swann had stunned the world when he retired midway through the Ashes tour. Regarded as a top class off-spinner, Swann took 255 wickets in 60 Tests. He was certainly good for more.
Swann told BBC Test Match Special: "Peter Such is the head of the spin department and he has asked me to talk to bowlers. I'll sit with spinners like Simon Kerrigan, Adam Riley and Scotty Borthwick."
